The Little Engine That CouldGreat story and App. Very easy to follow, read and it entertained my daughter. This well chosen story still is used as a life teaching experience which I value a lot. The settings are easy to use. However, the soundtrack overpowered the storytelling and made it difficult to hear. Minimizing the volume also turns down the storytelling so unfortunately, we could not play the soundtrack but only listen to the story telling or the soundtrack by itself. My 7yr old likes this and reads outstandingly and we find this App easier to use than logging onto You Tube or the web for a story. - Marlena C Dunn.Score: 4/5

Best book everI really enjoyed this book. I'm in year 11 and I'm 15 and this book was amazingly tense. I generally didn't think the little train would get the toys to the children at one point. I got really worried. Defiantly think the atmosphere the author created was amazing and It a must read. I will continue to read because I really enjoyed it. Recommended age is defiantly 15-20. Up to 'to kill a mockingbird' standards. I recommend it..Score: 5/5
